Many dads spent their Father’s Day listening to music with their children Sunday at the 2012 Riverhead Blues & Music Festival.

East Setauket resident Bill Wiesner and his daughter, Molly Tenyenhuis, said they decided to attend the event because the weather was nice and, of course, because they are big fans of the blues.

“It’s a great family place,” Mr. Wiesner said.

“We’ve been here before and it has always been a good time,” Ms. Tenyenhuis said.

Erik Luhmer, a father from East Quogue, attended the festival with his wife, Sarah, and children Noelle, 5, and Jakob, 2.

“We’re enjoying all the sights and sounds,” Mr. Luhmer said. “It’s a beautiful day and we’re having a good time.”

Blues fans packed downtown, dancing and cheering as the festival ended with a performance by Johnny Winter, who has been named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 100 greatest guitar players of all time.
